Zion Williamson to be sideline for another two weeks to continue his recovery from an injury he has been battling since January.

New Orleans Pelicans forward Zion Williamson will miss at least the next two weeks as he continues his recovery from a strained right hamstring.

The forward has been battling with the hamstring since January but the team announced that he will continue his recovery and might be back in two weeks time.

Williamson first injured the hamstring against the Philadelphia 76ers and suffered a setback just before the All-Star break, on Feb. 12. That setback prevented Williamson from playing in the game as a starter and pushed his time missed to over two months.

In the team statement on Wednesday, the Pelicans stated that Williamson was recently reevaluated and that medical imaging showed his hamstring “continues to heal.”

His next examination will take place in approximately two weeks, according to the team.

Asked Wednesday if the Pelicans still believed Williamson would return before the end of the regular season on April 9, coach Willie Green said, “We’re definitely optimistic about that.”

“He’s building his strength,” Green said of tge forward recovery process. “Doing some pool workouts. He can get on AlterG (anti-gravity treadmill). He can get on the floor and spot shoot. He’s progressing, but we’re extremely mindful of the last time we got to six weeks and he wasn’t quite ready. So we want to make sure we’re mindful of that.”
